PLEASE NOTE: I require all dogs to be up-to-date on core vaccines (rabies/distemper) as well as bordetella and that they regularly use flea and tick products. A copy of their vaccination record will be requested.
DROP-OFF TIMES: Flexible (early morning acceptable).
PICK-UP TIMES. Please plan to pick-up by 1:00 PM. Later pick-up times will require adding $20 to the reservation for daycare services.

I'm married with 2 teenage children (ages 15 & 16). I'm retired and my husband works from home so someone is always here to supervise the animals in our home. We have 4 rescue dogs of our own and 2 ragdoll cats. Our animals are very well socialized because they have been exposed to many dogs of all different ages and sizes. I have cared for a significant number of puppies and I have no issues having puppies in my home who may still require potty training.
I have been a volunteer with a licensed K9 rescue organization for over a year. I foster dogs for them (over 100 have been cared for in my home!), conduct adoption interviews and I am also the animal vetting records coordinator. I LOVE spending my time taking care of dogs - I feel like I have finally found my life's passion!
We have a very large and securely fenced yard (about 40,000 sq ft) and live at the end of a cul-de-sac. Behind my property (accessed from my yard) is a secluded road through the woods leading to the water shed area and it is a beautiful place for long nature walks, which take us around the lake (rarely are there vehicles as it is restricted to logging access). Weather permitting, I like to spend a lot of time outside. When inside, pet guests have access to the main level of my home...typically spending the most time in the family room, kitchen and office.
I believe that dogs should spend their days playing and having fun and I enjoy making sure that they do that in a safe and loving environment. Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me - I hope to have the opportunity to care for your pets in the near future!
